Swapped the silver 2008 ac control panel buttons onto my 2007 M45

So the destination,info,route,phone,etc... buttons on my 07 M45S were starting to fade (Guessing the previous owner used armor all to clean interior). Ordered a 08 ac control unit for $30 and swapped the buttons out. Fixed my problem plus looks way nicer imo. Lmk what you guys think and wether you want me to post a video on how to do it. Although it’s pretty easy and straight forward, takes about 15-20 minutes to swap.Image

Wow, that does look really good. Seems like a pretty straight forward DIY, so I bet others may follow your example. :dblthumb:

Just for future reference.
Usually all you need to do is right click and select 'Copy Image Location', and as long as it ends with .jpg or .png (etc.) you can put that in the image brackets. Pictures can also be added as attachments now as well.

I agree - looks good, but you've got some dirty floor mats...time for an interior detail - lol
